1. END OF THE BEGINNING

Is this the End of the Beginning?
Or the beginning of the end?
Losing control or are you winning?
Is your life real or just pretend?

Reanimation of the sequence
Rewinds the future to the past
To find the source of the solution
The system has to be recast

Release your mind
Fast forward to the secrets of your soul
Your life’s on overload, is this your fate?
The unit that makes you an entity

That’s your identity
If you don’t know which way to go
You may be lost and confused
A second chance, your turn to lose

You don’t wanna be a robot ghost
Occupied inside a human host
Analyzed then cloned relentlessly
Synthesized until they set you free

Alright, okay, alright
Till they set you free
Alright, okay
Till they set you free

Free...free...I'm free...be free

I don’t wanna see you
Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah
I don’t wanna see you
Yeah, yeah, yeah yeah




2. GOD IS DEAD?

Lost in the darkness
I fade from the light
Faith of my father
My brother, my maker and savior
Help me make it through the night

Blood on my conscience
And murder in mind
Out of the gloom
I rise up from my tomb, into impending doom
Now my body is my shrine

The blood runs free, the rain turns red
Give me the wine, you keep the bread
The voices echo in my head
Is God alive or is God dead?

Is God dead?

Rivers of evil
Run through dying land
Swimming in sorrow
They kill, steal and borrow, there is no tomorrow
For the sinners will be damned

Ashes to ashes
You cannot exhume a soul
Who do you trust
When corruption and lust, creed of all the unjust
Leaves you empty and un-whole?

When will this nightmare be over?
Tell me, when can I empty my head?
Will someone tell me the answer
Is God really dead?

Is God really dead?

To safeguard my philosophy
Until my dying breath
I transfer from reality
Into a living death
I empathize with enemies
Until the time is right
With God and Satan at my side
From darkness will come light

I watch the rain as it turns red
Give me more wine, I don’t need bread
These riddles that live in my head
I don’t believe that God is dead

God is dead

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
Wondering if we will meet again on the other side
Do you believe a word what the Good Book said
Or is it just a holy fairy tale and God is dead?

God is dead
God is dead
God is dead
God is dead

Right!

But still, the voices in my head
Are telling me that God is dead
The blood pours down, the rain turns red
I don’t believe that God is dead

God is dead
God is dead
God is dead
God is dead




3. LONER

He's just a Loner
He never says hello
A friend to no one
He's got no place to go

He don't look happy
He looks through furtive eyes
He ain't got nothing
No one to sympathize
Alright now

He hides himself away
His secret's not revealed
As life is passing by
He keeps himself concealed

A solitary man
An enigmatic child
A riddle never solved
A prisoner exiled
Alright, now

I wonder if the Loner can assimilate
A life less lived alone, plays Devil's advocate
Come on now!

Has he ever tried to be happy, reached out from inside?
Someone on whom he can depend
It's getting too late to recover, he won't stand a chance
And into his own Hell he'll descend

Don't descend
Don't descend
Don't descend
Don't descend

No understanding
Of things we already know
He has to live his life
And just learn how to let go
Alright, yeah

Communications an impossibility
His own best friend, but he's his own worst enemy
The secret of his past locked inside his head
I wonder if he will be happy when he's dead
Come on, yeah




4. ZEITGEIST

Astral engines in reverse
I'm falling through the universe again
Down among the dead men's vision
Faded dreams and nuclear fission's spent

The strings of theory are holding up the race
The puppets falling to the ground
The love I feel as I fly endlessly through space
Lost in time, I wonder will my ship be found

On this sinking ship I travel
Faster than the speed of light
Not so supernova burns
The black-holes turn and fade from sight

The strings of theory hide in the human race
The answers buried underground
The love I feel as I fly endlessly through space
Lost in time, I wonder will my ship be found

And very soon
The bomber's moon
Will show us light
And as we crash
We'll pray and kiss
And say goodnight

Goodnight...




5. AGE OF REASON

Do you hear the thunder
Raging in the sky
Premonition of a shattered world
That's gonna die

In the Age of Reason
How do we survive?
The protocols of evil ravaging
Of so many lives

So many lives...
So many lives...

Mystifying silence
Talking peace on Earth
We should judge each other for ourselves
Not for what we're worth

Sustainable extinction
A fractured human race
A jaded revolution
Disappears without a trace

Without a trace...
Without a trace...alright, yeah!

Always felt that there'd be trouble
Mass distraction hides the truth
Prozac days and sleepless hours
Seeds of change that don't bear fruit

Oh yeah

These times are heavy
And you're all alone
The battle's over
But the war goes on
Politics, religion
Love of money too
It's what the world was built for
But not for me and you

Oh yeah




6. LIVE FOREVER

Just before you die
They say you see your life go flashing by
Cold, dark, endless nights
To burn in Hell or bathe in Heaven's light

Well, I don't wanna Live Forever
But I don't wanna die
I may be dreaming, but whatever
I live inside a lie

Days pass by too soon
Waiting for the rising of the moon
No escape from here
Facing death, but is your conscience clear?

I may be dreaming, oh whatever
Watching my life go by
And I don't wanna Live Forever
But I don't wanna die

Well, I don't wanna Live Forever
But I don't wanna die
I may be dreaming, but whatever
I live inside a lie

Don't wanna Live Forever
But I don't wanna die
Don't wanna Live Forever
But I don't wanna die




7. DAMAGED SOUL

Born in a graveyard
Abducted by sin
I cultivate to evil
That's living within

A preacher tried saving
My black, Damaged Soul
Possessed by a demon
That had full control

The time, it is coming
When all life will end
With doomsday approaching
To Hell we'll descend

Religion won't save me
The damage is done
The future has ended
Before it's begun

Death's hand and the crazy
I can't stand the light of day
Watching all the victims
On their knees as they pray

God of the Almighty
Never answers their call
Satan, he is waiting
For the righteous to fall to him

I don't mind dying
'Cuz I'm already dead
Pray not for the living
I'll live in your head

Dying is easy
It's living that's hard
I'm losing the battle
Between Satan and God




8. DEAR FATHER

A childhood innocence was drowned in your tears
The demons that you fought are feeding your fears
The poisoned secrets of your life stand revealed
The truth destroys you, it's no longer concealed

Dear Father, forsaken
You knew what you were doing
In silence, your violence
Has left my life in ruin

Yeah
In ruin, yeah

You preyed upon my flesh then prayed for my soul
Belief betrayed by lust, the faith that you stole
Indoctrination by a twisted desire
The catechism of an evil messiah

Dear Father, forgive me
I know just what I'm doing
In silence, this violence
Will leave your life in ruin

Yeah
In ruin, yeah

Preacher of theocracy
Hiding your hypocrisy
Under a false sanctity
Holy phony empathy
You have taken my life
Now it's your turn to die

Can you sleep at night
When you close your eyes
Do you think of all the pain from your lies?
Or do you deny
You're responsible
For the victims of the sins you devised?

What you gonna tell them
When they ask you well, then
Is your conscience pure in your heart?
There is no exemption
When you seek redemption
For all the lives that you tore apart

Your molestations of the Cross you defiled
A man once holy, now despised and reviled
You took possession while confessing my sins
And now you have to face whatever death brings, yeah

Dear Father, forsaken
You knew what you were doing
In silence, your violence
Has left my life in ruin

Yeah
In ruin, yeah, yeah, yeah
In ruin, yeah




9. METHADEMIC

The epidemic from a crystal lie
Puts you in super over drive
The Methademic that is so hard to hide
Insanely staring with wide eyes

Hallucinating in a chemical Hell
Ain't my idea of having fun
Synthetic overload you're under its spell
Your super nightmare's just begun

You try to stop, but it controls you
Your love affair with it won't last
You're on a suicidal ride of self-destruction
And in the end you're gonna crash

You live too fast
You live too fast

You look just like a dead man alive
Losing the fight for survival
You sit and wait at Hell's fiery gate
Waiting the Devil's arrival
¡Ha-Ha-Ha!

You live so fast you need more Methademic crystal
You never sleep you just keep going
Just push the trigger on your hypodermic pistol
Each time you're dying without knowing

You live too fast
You live too fast

What's the point it's killing you without you even knowing
I can tell you've sold your soul and hell is where you're going
Ha-ha-ha I'll see you there





10. PEACE OF MIND

I wish somebody
Would enter my head
I am so sorry
For the things that I've said

This hopeless feeling
That's living inside
I'm just a lonely soul
Who's trying to find some Peace of Mind

I ain't no hero
Who's gonna save you
I'll just say "hi"
As I'm passing right through

I ain't that crazy
I'm only here for the ride
So please forgive me
While I'm trying to find some Peace of Mind

Read in between the lines
Truth that is neither black nor white...black nor white
Just give me something real
Broken man still searching for a light...in the night

Caught in the middle as the front-line falls
It looks like I don't stand a chance
If only I could turn my life around
Or is this just the circumstance?




11. PARIAH

Pariah from society
Addicted to sobriety
The product of a virgin birth
Another God on earth
Yes, that's your fantasy

You say that you can read my mind
Be careful of what you might find
You say that you can be like me
And see what my eyes see
But you're no friend of mine

Do you believe every word I say?
Make your own truth and get out of my way

I'm your Pariah
For your desire
Ain't no messiah
Just your Pariah

An angel or the Antichrist
A victim of your own device
Pathetic in your own sad way
You're just one pill away
From taking my advice

Do you believe every word I say?
Make up your mind and get out of my way

I'm your Pariah
For your desire
Ain't no messiah
Just your Pariah

Do you believe that I'm from Heaven
That I descended from the sky
The graven image of a pseudo-icon
To worship me on high?

I'm not your savior
I got no wings to fly
Just your Pariah
Don't look to me when your life is over

I'm your Pariah
For your desire
Ain't no messiah
Just your Pariah

Ain't no messiah
Just your Pariah




12. NAIVETE IN BLACK

Guess we’re all running out of time
So live your own life and let me live mine
To each their own to question why
We’re all just links that forge the chain of life

But who am I to interfere?
Think for yourself and keep your conscience really clear

Learn from each other so they say
But no one listens to them anyway
Inactive factions stir in time
Procrastination at the scene of the crime

There’s no return, no guarantee
Accept the terms and let your fate be free…be free

You gotta let yourself see
And let your feelings go free
Accept your own ability
Don’t want to end up like me

A dynasty of doubt and hate
Religion, politics, self-mutilate
The privilege of being here
All born from nothing ‘till we disappear

There’s no return, no guarantee
Accept the terms and let your fate be free, you’re free
